Ancient Purity is proud to present our locally sourced English Peppermint Essential Oil, a classic part of the English garden comes to life in this health enhancing classic essential oil. 
Peppermint oil has a long history of medicinal uses, practiced by many various cultures around the world. Probably the most well-known and widely used is that of peppermint oil as a digestive aid. The powerful organic compounds in this essential oil have a soothing effect on the muscles of the digestive tract, calming muscle spasms, and preventing such maladies as nausea, diarrhea, indigestion, bloating, and flatulence.

Another traditional use of peppermint essential oil is to focus the mind, improve memory, and promote wakefulness without causing the signature nervousness and anxiety associated with other stimulants like caffeine.

Historically, essential oil of peppermint has been used to reduce pain caused by muscle tension and inflammation such as headaches, joint pain, muscle soreness, and swollen lymph glands. Peppermint oil is also well-known for its anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic qualities and has been widely used throughout history to treat bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections, both internally and externally. Modern science now recognizes these qualities to be due to the high concentration of menthol (around 40% of the total composition) found in the essential oil. Peppermint oil has also long been revered for its ability to ease the symptoms of cold, flu, and other respiratory illnesses – also due to the oil’s high concentration of menthol.

Peppermint Essential Oil Gives

Clear Sinuses
Try this steam inhalation technique to clear sinus congestion. Boil a pot of distilled water. Remove from the stove and – while the water is still steaming – add a few drops each of peppermint and tea tree essential oils. Immediately close your eyes, lower your face over the water, and drape a damp towel over the back of your head. (Be sure to also cover the edges of the pot to trap the steam.) Inhale deeply and regularly for several minutes to reduce inflammation and open up your airways. Remember to keep your eyes closed the entire time!

Pain Relief
As we have already mentioned, peppermint oil possesses analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. While medical science has yet to unequivocally prove this health benefit, people have used peppermint oil for pain relief throughout history. Try some of the following methods using this amazing essential oil to soothe and soak away aches and pains.

Soak Away Aches
Make your own peppermint oil-infused bath salts for a cooling, pain-fighting soak. Simply mix 16 ounces of Epsom salt and approximately 15 drops of peppermint oil into warm (not hot) bath water. Soak until the water begins to cool. Also, always remember to drink plenty of water before and after a warm bath in order to prevent dehydration!

Joint Pain
Use peppermint oil to ease joint pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis. First, dilute approximately 15 drops of peppermint essential oil per 1 ounce of a carrier oil like sweet almond or coconut oil. Then massage into painful joints for quick relief.

Sore Muscles
To temporarily relieve pain from overworked or strained muscles, use the same mixture detailed above – 15 drops of peppermint oil per 1 ounce of carrier oil – and massage directly into sore muscles.

Tension Headaches
The cooling anti-inflammatory power of peppermint oil also has a long history of use to banish tension headaches. Simply massage peppermint oil – diluted or straight – into temples, behind your jawbone, and across your forehead for rapid relief.

Skin Irritations
Peppermint oil can be used to cool and soothe skin affected by burns, rashes, or dryness. Use a dilution of no more than 15 drops peppermint oil per 1 ounce of carrier oil to avoid damaging already irritated skin. Then simply massage the diluted oil into skin to refresh, moisturize, and soothe away pain.

Digestive Health
Yet another natural remedy which medical research has yet to confirm, peppermint oil maintains an impressive record when it comes to relieving digestive ailments.

Peppermint oil is know for its ability to calm the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract. Peppermint oil also improves the flow of bile – the chemical which our body’s use to digest fats. As a result, peppermint oil helps food to pass through the gut more quickly and efficiently. However, note that if your indigestion is related to gastro-esophageal reflux disease (aka GERD) you should avoid this remedy. Peppermint oil will also relax the sphincter that separates the stomach from the esophagus, essentially worsening the heartburn associated with GERD.

For some people, the scent of peppermint can soothe nausea. While this remedy doesn’t work for everyone, the next time you feel sick to your stomach, take a small sniff of peppermint oil. If you find that the scent soothes your stomach, go ahead and add a few drops to a diffuser to maximise the oil’s effectiveness. This remedy has even been known to help some women through the woes of morning sickness.

Gas & Bloating
There have been several medical studies which have shown that peppermint is an effective at treating some symptoms of IBS including pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea. although the oil being released in the stomach, can lead to heartburn and indigestion, this can be solved by a good quality carrier oil such as Argan, Jojoba or Rosehip.

A study published in the Avicenna Journal of Phytomedicine investigated the effects of peppermint ingestion on exercise performance. 30 healthy male college students were randomly divided into experimental and control groups. They were given a single oral dose of peppermint essential oil and measurements were taken on their physiological parameters and performance.

Researchers observed significant improvements in all of the tested variables ofter ingestion of peppermint oil. Those in the experimental group showed an incremental and significant increase in their grip force, standing vertical jump and standing long jump. The peppermint oil group also showed a significant increase in the amount of air that is exhaled from the lungs, peak breathing flow rate and peak exhaling flow rate, which suggests that peppermint may have a positive effect on the bronchial smooth muscles.
